David Jeffrey keen to end Ballymena's losing run

New Ballymena United manager David Jeffrey is demanding "total commitment" from his players as he tries to end their five-game losing streak in the Irish Premiership.

He takes his new side to Seaview to play league champions Crusaders on Saturday admitting "confidence will obviously be down" but expects the players to give of their best as they begin the task of climbing up the table from their current ninth position.

Crusaders manager Stephen Baxter acknowledged his team are in "a good position" with 10 games remaining and wants his players to relax and enjoy the games.
